Cross-wiki notification is an enhancement to the notifications tool that lets you see messages from all Wikimedia wikis on the wiki in which you are currently working.

Information displayed[edit]

Principle of cross-wiki notifications: You are notified at the wiki you are on, about all notifications from other wikis. You can see the details and perform some actions.

Cross-wiki notifications are displayed as items in the notifications panels. (The sorting of items is still being decided at phab:T123018.)

These cross-wiki notifications are bundled into a single notification. This bundle is expandable by clicking on it. Cross-wiki notifications from an individual wiki are grouped together.

Please give us feedback if you have any problems with it, and tell us what you like about it!

What information, and where[edit]

You will receive notifications from all other wikis than the wiki you are currently visiting.

For example, if you are on Commons, you will receive a notification if someone thanks you on Vietnamese Wiktionary.

You may receive unread notifications from other wikis, sometimes pending since a long time.

It is possible to deactivate cross-wiki notifications on a given wiki (see below).

Release timeline[edit]

Release by default has been done on May 12 2016 at 23:00 UTC.

We have tested many possible cases during a three-months long Beta release, but you may experience some problems. If so (and we are sorry about that), please give us feedback.

Further settings are being considered at phab:T117670. A way to filter these notifications in user preferences is under discussion.

Deactivate the feature[edit]

Opt-out Cross-wiki Notifications option on a given wiki is provided by deselecting the cross-wiki option on your preferences, on the Notifications tab.

Preferences are not global, so you have to deactivate Cross-wiki Notifications on all wikis you regularly visit.
